I've been experimenting with Japanese woodblock printing, moku hanga, using rice paste and colors mixed from gouache and watercolor, and I tried out some papers from McClain's Printmaking in Portland. The image to the left was printed on masa dosa, a well-sized and heavyweight handmade Japanese paper. I thought the white hue would be good for showing the amazing color of Diablo Lake in August.
To the right is the same image printed on kozo paper, much lighter weight, creamier in hue and more transparent. In brushing the color on I discovered that more paint and rice paste was neccessary on the masa dosa paper.
